Coffee Shop Meetings

So, we have all likely done it, met someone at a coffee shop for some reason (lots of reasons there).  I have met lots of people at coffee shops for all sorts of reasons.  I have also spent plenty of my work days at a coffee shop as I am blessed with a position that allows me to get my work done there (or anywhere honestly) ...

One Percent

No folks, this is not about the “one percent” that Bernie Sanders complains about on a regular basis – I am not touching that one with a ten-foot pole.  I am arguably crazy, but not quite that crazy. No, this is about the effect that only one percent could have. To give credit where credit is due, this was ...

Beer Spillage Analysis

I am finally following up on my LONG-awaited and SUPER-detailed analysis of the big question that we all struggle with on a daily basis:  "What is the value of beer spilled at Wrigley Field during an average game?"  Potentially life-changing stuff here, I realize that, so I apologize for my delay in releasing my ...

So it came to me, while sitting at a red light today (that I should not have been stuck at) that on my deathbed, I ...

A Break from Facebook

Well, I decided to take a "break" from Facebook, and based one some of the feedback/questions I received, you would think that I just renounced my US citizenship for Russia.  Which inspired me, of course, to write about it, since that's what I do. The big question is "why", of course.  Bottom line - just too much ...
